About BX Foundry Handcrafted Joysticks

Hi, I’m Benj Edwards, a tech journalist and historian. Since August 1st, 2018, I’ve been hand-building joysticks and selling them through Twitter (@benjedwards).

(For more on that story, check out this post.)

People love them.

So far I’ve built and shipped over 100 joysticks around the world for platforms such as Atari/Commodore, NES, Genesis. Right now I’m focusing on my new Super NES stick, the BX-110.

When hand-building the BX-110, I usually sell it for $150. They are complex to wire and prepare. I have hand-built four BX-110s so far (example), and they are wonderful for almost any type of Super NES game — even platformers.

This run of BX-110s is going to be slightly different from my other creations, because I am getting pre-orders so I can afford to buy larger quantities of parts, which will keep the costs lower.

Each BX-110 will come with a custom-designed circuit board that is electronically equivalent to a SNES pad. No lag.

Over 60 BX-110s sold so far! Come join the BX Foundry revolution.
